This item: Taurus 3 Slicer Blade Kit by Gemini Saw Company
Use with Super Slicer attachment #57108 (see image below)to cut slab glass, pattern bars, millifiori, streamers, can, rods and other small objects in perfectly parallel thin slices. Cuts slices as thin as 1/8". Super Slicer blade only fits the Taurus 3 ring saw #57003. Includes 2 orange grommets.
Pattern bar bowl from "Contemporary Warm Glass," book #6814.
Pros : You can use this for thick slab cutting. Be careful as the blade is not as sturdy as a mega blade. This does not eat up as much glass but has a tendency to bend while cutting. You must compensate during the cut. Gently! But it still holds up well with many, many cuts without problems of breaking.
Cons : It flexes during the cut which means it doesn't keep a straight line for a slab cut. You must compensate for that.
Other Thoughts : Doesn't eat up too much glass during cutting. I really like the mega blade better for cutting straight cuts on slabs. They all cost about the same.

Raise your hands if you are totally psyched about what is happening in today’s arts and crafts world. In true Arnold Horshack form “OOOOOOHHHHH. OOOOOOHHHHH. OOOOOOHHHHH. ” What has gotten me so excited - the rise of Mixed Media Collage. I have a confession to make, even though I work mainly in the art glass world - I am so the closet Mixed Media Collage junkie. No wonder, my love of combining tiny pieces of tesserae to create mosaics translates perfectly to combining layers of mixed media to create a similar effect. Mixed Media Collage brings so many techniques together to create wonderful masterpieces. It’s all about the layering and composition. And it teaches us so much about what looks “right” and what doesn’t. Now mind you, I said I was a junkie, not an expert. But I would like to share with you my addiction and the method to
Part 2 of a 2 part series on the basics of glass fusing. In this weeks article Donna gives advice on indispensable tools for beginner glass fusers. In the beginning, I used one larger tool, and that was a Super Star Grinder. It is still running, running, running. Others have come, and some have gone, but this one is still here. For smaller cold working projects, diamond hand pads do a nice job. The next cutting tool that I bought was a saw. My Taurus 3 Ring Saw has worked extremely well for me, and I love what I can do with it that I couldnt do before, but I worked for 2 years before I purchased this nifty item. As for cutters and breakers, I have many, but for me, the Silberschnitt breaker pliers are a must for small (1/4") strip breaking.....saves so much glass. I use both plastic
